Wednesday, February 1st, 2012
AT&T announced today that the Samsung Infuse will finally hit mainstream with the update to Android 2.3 Gingerbread. The update will actually take the Samsung Infuse to Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread specifically including bug fixes and enhancements.
Samsung Infuse Gingerbread Update Features:
- Improved Copy and Paste functionality
- Redesigned Multi Touch Software Keyboard
- Download manager for long running HTTP downloads
- Improved power management and application control
- Notification Shade: “Flight Mode” added (“Silent” removed)
- New Fonts options added include Choco Cooky, Cool Jazz, Rosemary
- Keyboard Changes: Android Keyboard with Wider Spaced keys and Quick Keys at the top
- New Widgets: The name of the content provider will be listed on the widget list along with the widget name. Previously only the widget name was provided.
- New Widget: Traffic (Android) added to list of available widgets
- Menu Changes/New Apps: Downloads and Google Books added new, Promotional pre-load of Angry Birds removed*.
*Note: The update will remove the promotional Angry Birds pre-load from the device. If you’ve started playing the game, you would need to re-download from the Marketplace and start from the beginning of the game.
Apparently the update will not be pushed over the air and will require a PC with Windows on it, sorry Mac users. The download link that AT&T gives currently does not work but will be able to be found below.
Please let us know how the update goes and if you notice anything still not working or anything not mentioned above. Good luck and happy updating.
